I used the usual:

yum install git

It did not install the latest version of git on my CentOS 6. How can I update to the latest version of git for CentOS 6? The solution can be applicable to newer versions of CentOS such as CentOS 7.

For this, you need to install WANDisco repo package

Install WANDisco repo package using:

yum install http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/6/git/x86_64/wandisco-git-release-6-1.noarch.rpm  

or 

yum install http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/7/git/x86_64/wandisco-git-release-7-1.noarch.rpm  

or

yum install http://opensource.wandisco.com/centos/7/git/x86_64/wandisco-git-release-7-2.noarch.rpm

Install the latest version of Git 2.x:

yum install git

Verify the version of Git that was installed:

git --version
